The U.S. News & World Report just published their rigorous 2020-21 Best Nursing Homes Ratings, with Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Home West Columbia, SC receiving a 5 out of 5 for an overall score, and a short-term rehabilitation rating of “High Performing” - the highest rating given.

“Congratulations to the Still Hopes team of caregivers, and the army of support staff, who work so well together to make us recognized as one of the nation’s best places to get nursing and therapy service and care,” said Danny Sanford, Executive Director, CEO at Still Hopes.

One of the most notable details that came from the report involved the Sanders Guignard Rehabilitation Suites, where Still Hopes was compared apples-to-apples to the national and state numbers. 

In the report, Still Hopes is listed as providing an average of just over two hours of Registered Nurse care and services to each resident, every day. The South Carolina average is only 43 minutes, and the nation-wide average is only 41 minutes, showing that Still Hopes’ Registered Nurses provide three times the support of the national average.

And for physical therapy, Still Hopes provides 31 minutes of therapy per person each day, while both South Carolina and the U.S. average five minutes. This illustrates the physical therapy provided at Still Hopes is six times the national average.

Though no national data for other levels of care was available, Sanford commented, “knowing that we strive for excellence in care and services across the board, gives me reassurance that if we are performing at the highest level in one area, we very likely are doing the same in all endeavors.”
